Talent Yield Coalition Inc. was organized in the spring of 1990 with programs designed to help youth 13 through 21. T.Y.C.'s objectives are to provide structured programs and resources for at risk youth-- or youth most likely to get involved in negative street activities. The coalition started with over 100 young people from low income homes across Houston and Harris County and now regularly serve over 300 youth.
However, like most programs when designed for an age group, the relationships developed evolve into what we have found to be an assignment to a generation. Encompassing both previous and future generations. The realizations that repetition of previous generations mistakes as well as current failing programs seldom meet the needs of the next generation.
Constant technological advances; human adaptabilty to understand and operate in such a high speed and stress filled environment; and the failing of moral and ethical values gives each generation a host of unpredictable future obstacles to prepare for. Particularly since the current generation is in a struggle to undo the wrongs and mistakes of their predecessor.
Hence; the need for us to stop, regroup and start anew is imperative. "It's back to basics". "Reviewing what works and why". and developing programs that address "The Whole Nine Yards". Thus we at Talent Yield Coalition Inc. after eighteen years of serving as gate keepers; front line warriors and coalition builders; are committed to the premise that we must look at the big picture, with focus on not just the here and now but the now (Alpha) to the future and beyond (Omega).
